Hi! I'm new to OOo, and I've been using Math, running on win 7, trying to make my homework look nice and neat.
I'm trying to export to PDF, and I'm either getting this crazy bug, or there's something I'm not getting. This is what i get when I try exporting:



It's a total shambles. Help![/img]

No one?

I've kept working on this, trying to find some solution here (and elsewhere online), but so far no luck. I've also tried saving as .xls, and found that I get the same problem then. Also, it's not just my computer, as I've had a friend try exporting the file to PDF on several other computers.

Please, help!

Does the formula look right in writer?

Can you copy your code here, so that I can try to reproduce the error?

yep!

here it is:

Uppgift 1: newline
Ställ upp ett uttryck för en vardagshändelse. Gör sedan om uttrycket till en ekvation och räkna ut ett värde på variabeln. newline Beskriv tydligt hur du tänkte när du ställde upp uttrycket/ekvationen. newline
Jag valde att göra ett uttryck för hur mycket vatten jag gör av med på duschar per genomsnittlig dag på ett år. newline
Först måste jag bestämma hur mycket vatten som kommer ur duschmunstycket per enhet tid. Jag väljer minut. newline Det är lite jobbigt (och onödigt) att spola vatten så länge, så jag undersöker hur många liter vatten som kommer newline ur duschen på 10 sekunder, och kallar det x. 6x blir då liter vatten/minut. Jag multiplicerar det med antalet newline minuter jag står i duschen (som jag kallar y) och har då: newline
6xy newline
Efter detta väljer jag att lägga på en "uppvärmningskonstant" på en halv minut, för all eventuell tid innan och newline efter jag faktiskt är i duschen som den ändå är på, och får således: newline
6x(y+0,5) newline
vilket kan förenklas till newline
6xy + 3x newline
För att sedan göra detta till årsförbrukningen multipliceras hela rasket därefter med 52 för årets veckor, samt newline divideras med 365 för årets dagar, varefter man har newline
{52(6xy+3x)}over {365} newline
eller förenklat newline
{312xy+156x} over {365} newline
Detta uttryck kan nu sägas vara lika med min ungefärliga dusch-vattenförbrukning per dag, som vi ger namnet D. newline
Alltså ~~ {312xy+156x} over {365} = D newline
När jag undersökte vattenflödet i min dusch, visade det sig att x = 1,3 liter, och när jag tagit tid på några av mina duschar, newline
visar det sig att y approx 8 minuter. Alltså är mitt D lika med newline
{(312 times 1,3 times 8 ) + (156 times 1,3)} over {365} ~ eller ~ {3447,6} over {365} newline
Och således ~ D approx 9,445 liter.
newline newline


Uppgift 2: newline
Förenkla och beräkna newline
(5+x)(4-2x)+(x-3)(x-3)+(5-x)(5+x) +3 = 0 newline
(20-10x+4x-2x^2)+(x^2-6x+9)+(25-x^2) +3 = 0 newline
-2x^2-6x+20 + x^2-6x+9 - x^2+25 + 3 = 0 newline
-2x^2-12x+57 = 0 newline
x^2+6x-28,5 = 0 newline

-(6/2)+- sqrt {(6/2)^2 +28,5} newline
-3+- sqrt {9 +28,5} newline
-3+- sqrt {37,5} newline
sqrt {37,5} approx 6,123 newline
-3+- 6,123 = x sub 1 = 3,123 , x sub 2 = -9,123 newline
newline

I guess Math is not meant for document production as such, but rather as a tool for creating objects to insert in other documents. It has no concept of page formats, and that seems to be causing your problem.

Insert your math object in a Writer document and adjust the margins to fit the entire object on a page (it just barely fits within left/right edges on an A4 portrait page), and you should be able to export it to a useable pdf.

Normally, I would type everything into Writer, and use Math only for mathemathical formulas (perhaps even only for those formulas that cannot be easily input as running text). One Math object for each formula. That makes it easier to make adjustments in order to create a nice looking end result.
